Karma Never Sleeps envelops listeners into a dramatic, dreamlike state, with intricate tales of political corruption, desperation and despair, and even words of cautionary counseling for the young and reckless. The EP features six sweeping tracks filled with soaring vocals, catchy hooks, charging guitars and explosive instrumentations, lyrically infused with powerful, poignant storylines.

I the Mighty vocalist Brent Walsh speaks of the band's politically-charged lead single "Cutting Room Floor" explaining, I go through phases where I follow politics closely, only to find myself backing away from it completely because it brings little more than frustration and a greater lack of confidence in humanity. The song describes Karma catching up to somebody who has let the persuasive hand of greed be the guiding light by which they live their life. He concludes, We dont want people to just listen to our music on a surface level. We want people to dive into the songs and dissect them and to really feel them."

Rock Sound - "...a highly assured and brilliantly conceived EP"
March 28, 2012

"I The Mighty's Equal Vision debut matches soaring hook-laden vocal melodies with rich rhythms and spiraling guitars that are equal parts throatily riffling and atmospheric. Like the two bands it is most reminiscent of Circa Survive and Saosin, the main secret to the success here is the strength of the actual material - each and every song is a muscular slice of hook-laden alt-pop. To some extent a concept album, each track deals lyrically with different aspects of Karma, which only adds a further layer of intrigue to what is a highly assured and brilliantly conceived EP."
